Nancy's story

Nancy is 53 years old. She is an enterprising and very hardworking woman. She hasn’t been in a romantic relationship for many years since she has always dedicated herself to looking to the care of her 4 children with whom she lives in her own house. She always goes looking for new opportunities and has learned to be stronger with the passing of the years. Nancy is a woman who enjoys work. She doesn’t like to be inactive and it is for that reason that she doesn’t falter when there is a task to be done.

The source of her main income consists of renting motorcycle taxis. She has 3 vehicles of which one presents in optimal conditions, another that requires some repairs and a third vehicle that for five years has needed a complete refurbishment in order to put it into circulation. She started in this business 8 years ago and her daily income has increased. She also has a store of food products where she works with the help of her daughter.

She likes all of the things she does a lot and doesn’t hesitate to put forward her best efforts to work each day with a lot of optimism. Her great desire now is to repair the third vehicle that for now is in an inactive state. On this occasion she requests 1,800 soles (PEN). She is grateful and happy to know that she continues to have the financial support that she needs to advance with the progress of her business.

She will invest the requested amount in the purchase of tires and an engine and she will pay for the labor of the mechanic that will repair her inactive motorcycle taxi.
